This week: Cody from Roecker Reviews!
Hi y’all! I’m so thankful and excited to be a guest on Sarah’s beautiful blog today! Now when I saw this feature I KNEW I had to do it! But then I remembered that we were to choose one book! ONE! This was one of the hardest things I have ever decided on… and I am such an indecisive person… (I had 3 that I really wanted to talk about… but I decided to choose the one that’s releasing the soonest of them!) So, for my recommendation… I have to recommend my FAVORITE book of the year so far!
KIDS OF APPETITE by David Arnold!
I have been mulling over just what I need to say about this book to do it justice…
And I can’t…
But what I can do is tell you what you can find in this book…
You will find a story of love and loss and friendship.
You will find a story following the most unforgettable and memorable characters I have ever read about.
You will find a story filled with glorious Outsiders references
This is a story that takes place in interrogation rooms with our two main characters (although there are five characters that are the central focus and I think they all are equally represented, and beautifully so!)
David Arnold’s writing is BEAUTIFUL.
I have nothing but good things to say about this novel!
I laughed, I cried, I hugged the book, I threw it across the room.
It’s compulsively readable. And you will never forget the story held within it’s pages.
David Arnold has truly written a masterpiece and I do not take that kind of statement lightly!!!!
This is literally the one book I will push onto everyone I meet. No matter their reading preferences. I believe anyone and everyone will find something to obsess over in this novel.
I’m going to leave you now with my favorite quote in the novel: “Quiet observers tend to be loud thinkers.”
I really want to thank Sarah for organizing all of this and allowing me to be featured! This was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see what everybody else recommends! (Although my TBR won’t be happy about it…)
I hope this made you want to read Kids of Appetite! 🙂

About the Book
Kids of Appetite
by David Arnold
Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell.
It begins with the death of Vic’s father.
It ends with the murder of Mad’s uncle.
The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it.
But in order to tell their story, Vic and Mad must focus on all the chapters in between.
This is a story about:
1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.
7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.
8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.
9. A story collector.
10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.
11. Falling in love with a painting.
12. Falling in love with a song.
13. Falling in love.
